I just purchased a used Martin Rebel recurve. From my findings on the web and looking at the limb tips it seems to be an older model (2002ish). I'd like to replace the string on it, but when I bought a string that is 4" shorter than it's length the brace height shot out to 8.5" with only 4-6 twists in the string, which is a lot more than the 7" the website claims. Other than making the bow more forgiving, will this hurt the bow in any way? What is the suggested string length for this bow? My draw length is only 26" (I'm short) if that matters.
